Haunt presents Strand, a group exhibition at Achterhaus, Hamburg, featuring Canadian artists Dana Buzzee, Katie Kozak and Sylvie Ringer. Pastel on paper, cast bronze and porcelain, and a hand knit covering become the skin, the organs, and the bones of a corporeal installation, calling viewers to move, shift territory, flash focus, and sway sensation.
Dana Buzzee is an interdisciplinary visual artist and arts administrator currently based in Calgary, AB. In 2012 Buzzee graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, studying at the Alberta College of Art and Design, the New York Studio Residency Program and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Since completing her BFA , Buzzee has enjoyed participating in exhibitions and residencies in Canada, Finland, Iceland, and the United States. Rooted in contemporary queer feminism, Buzzee’s practice strives to be intersectional and inclusive in its politics and affect.
Katie Kozak is a Creighton, Saskatchewan artist of Métis and Ukrainian descent, whose work is a thoughtful blend of visual art and science. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Victoria and has studied at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver, and Chelsea College of Arts, London. Recent exhibitions include Baba’s House, a touring Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina, exhibition and New Acquisitions, Burnaby Art Gallery, Burnaby.
Sylvie Ringer is an artist and illustrator from Hamburg, Germany, currently based in Port Hardy/Vancouver. She studied illustration and fine art at the Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften, Hamburg, and at the St Luc Academy in Brussels. Interested in utopias, hedges, and coconuts, and the repurposing of objects, she draws from alternative histories and her immediate environment, looking to reflect the ephemerality of the moment. She is co-founder of the artist-run space Achterhaus and the Achterhaus Residency Program in Hamburg, Germany.
